Siete Misterios is a company set up by a couple of guys from Mexico City in 2010 with the vision of preserving the culture that mezcal carries with it and at the same time sustain the micro-economies in the areas where their Mezcal is produced.
Los Siete Misterios, and brand tha stands out with it’s great graphic expression as well as it’s bold clay pot Mezcals from Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. Though they have quite the line up of wild agaves in their range, we decided to focus on our very favourites, but who knows what the future might bring.
